Our Salt Lake City area is laden with amazing small, local businesses that make our community the great place it is. When you buy from a local business, you are helping someone in your community who owns that business. You also help the economy and well-being of the people around you.

One of the businesses we love – and we love many – is Al’s Sporting Goods, and we’re highlighting them this month for multiple reasons.

Snap Up Their Deals!

Also, take advantage of their ski rentals and tuning during the winter season, as well as their bike shop during the summer.
Their warehouse is in North Logan, so if they don’t have it in the store, it won’t take that long to get it in stock.
Every Sport, Every Season
Al’s motto is “Every Sport, Every Season,” and it’s true. Think of any sport and you can find what you need at Al’s – whether you’re hiking, riding the trails, fishing, running, hunting, climbing, boating, swimming, snowboarding, skiing, and mor
